Ali Larijani, the chairman of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, denied in an interview with Newsweek that Iran was providing arms to the Hamas. He admitted, however, that his country was funneling finances to Islamic group, as well as to Hizbullah. "We do support Hizbullah and Hamas, that is right," Larizani said. "But these two are not terrorist groups. These are the two groups that are defending their own land." Larijani, who is also Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, was asked what his country's response would be were further sanctioned to be placed upon it. "Let's assume they would be willing to pursue this course," the nuclear attaché said. "They can pass another resolution, and we would make another, longer stride. Therefore they cannot solve the Iranian nuclear program."
